Late Show & Late Late Show
The "Late Show" and "Late Late Show" were originally movies shown very late at night on CBS television (Channel 2). The terms date to 1951.

David Letterman now hosts 'The Late Show" from New York City (and also on CBS).

Tom Snyder used to host the "Tomorrow" show, also called the "Late Late Show" and also broadcast from New York City.
